SuperHeroes Power #24: Friendly Fire

Behold the latest in the superpowers series, Friendly Fire. By far this one has been the most fun to work on yet.

It has more of a story than the previous ones, and it had some aspects that were challenging which in turn made it fun.

This was my first jump into fluid dynamics to recreate fire. If there’s one thing I learned, is to mind the render times when you get layers of simulations. The first few shots rendered out fairly quickly, however, once the main explosion was triggered, the renders slowed down to a crawl. I’m talking a week of rendering 300 frames. On a side note, the final explosion shot generated a 90+ GB cache file/folder – yikes!.

  1. wow! really great work, really love it, simply but cute character and a nice look overall!

    what did you use to create the explosions, maybe you could elaborate a little more about the process of the fluid sims?
